Information regarding brake assist systems  
Brake assist systems can help the driver in critical  
driving or braking situations. The driver is responsible  
for driving safely ÿ .  
Fig. 175 In the infotainment system: display of the  
park exit assistant.  
When the relevant brake assist system regulates,  
continue to brake hard enough and, if necessary,  
control the trajectory of the vehicle.  
The park exit assistant works with radar sensors mounted  
in the rear bumper.  
The system detects objects approaching or moving from  
behind or from the sides ÿ fig. 174 and warns the driver  
of possible obstacles ÿ .  
The intelligent technology of brake assist systems  
cannot overcome the limits imposed by the laws of  
physics and only works within the limits of the systems.  
Driving at high speed on icy, slippery or wet roads can  
cause loss of vehicle control and serious injury to the  
driver and passengers.  
If there is an obstacle, a warning signal sounds.  
Depending on the equipment, the obstacle area is  
displayed in color in the infotainment system ÿ fig. 175  
or a warning or control lamp is displayed with a  
message in the instrument panel.

Particularities in case of towing a trailer  
The park exit assist is deactivated if the factory-fitted  
towing hitch is electrically connected to a trailer.  
— If there is a fault in the ABS, the ESC, ASR and EDS  
also stop working.  
When the ignition is switched on, the status of the  
braking functions is automatically checked. The control  
indicators light up briefly and go out again. If any control  
indicator remains on, there is a fault. Immediately go to  
a suitably qualified specialist workshop.
